changing vat scheme from cash to standard

SUGGESTED

I am changing my vat scheme from cash to standard accounting on 1st May, has anyone done this before and/or have any words of advice?  I've read the instructions but would value personal opinions / advice / tips if possible, especially for any supplier/customer invoices dated before 1st May that havent yet been input

    Sage will pick up any invoices dated before 1st May that have not been included in a VAT Return. Going from Cash-based to Standard is not too bad. The other direction is far worse.

    The main caveat is this

    "This procedure should be carried out at a month or quarter end, after reconciling the VAT on the VAT Cash Accounting scheme and before entering any transactions under the Standard VAT scheme."
